I'm a Speech-Language Pathologist registered with the College of Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists of Ontario (CASLPO). I currently practice in the hospital setting, providing assessment, treatment, and management services in both medicine (acute care) and inpatient rehabilitation units.

My primary areas of interests include assessment, treatment, and continuing education in the fields of dysphagia, acquired language disorders (such as aphasia and or cognitive communication disorders), and motor speech production. I also enjoy working within an interprofessional team to ensure my practice is holistic, evidence-based, and patient-centered.

I am also interested in community-based programs with a focus on the life-participation approach. I am passionate about supporting patients living with aphasia build meaningful connections with their family and loved ones.

Outside of my job, I enjoy the outdoors, sports (long-distance running, beach/court volleyball, snowboarding), and good conversation. Feel free to contact me at [email protected]
